Generally I don’t post many comments, but feel the need to do so for Jumeirah Dhevanafushi. I have just returned for the third time from a short break there but absolutely cant get enough of the island. The staff, management and the villas are top notch and I haven’t stayed anywhere that can compare to the tranquility of Jumeirah Dhevanafushi.
Already the warm welcome that is being extended during the arrival on the jetty makes you feel at home within no time. Breakfast at Azara (the main restaurant) is also a treat. What else to wish for than sitting in the sand, looking out to the sea with a glass (or two!) of champagne. I stayed in one of the Beach Sanctuaries, which I found extremely comfortable and spacious. The second bedroom is extremely good if you are travelling with children and the pool with its size is just amazing for a lazy day. The bed in the master bedroom is the largest I have ever seen and you can easily get lost in the bed. That is, if you wish to do so....
We also had dinner at Johara one night, which was as well an absolute pleasure from the service to the quality of food – just amazing. The best thing you can actually ask for almost anything you want and the staff is determined to prepare it for you!
Having said this I must say that beside the great ‘hardware’ it’s the staff that makes this place heaven on earth. From arrival to departure anyone you meet smiles and greets you in the most polite and generous manner. Everyone remembers your name and is at your service if you need them - still at the same time preserving your privacy. I have been to about 15 luxury resorts in the Maldives and its now my 3rd visit to Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and for sure not the last one. If you are looking for total relaxation with a team around that makes you feel like you are part of their family do not hesitate to book this resort! It’s more than I can wish for and I am looking forward to coming back soon.
